Re: Suggestion for new dingbats/symbols

The US National Park Service pictograph set might be a good candidate
set as these are widely used on maps and in the text of guidebooks,
etc. - as well as in GIS applications.

These symbols also have been placed in the public domain - so there
should be no copyright issues.

This set of symbols, has been around since 1974 and is now well
established. It is somewhat curious that they haven't already found
their way into the Unicode Standard as in general they seem more
useful than many other symbols which have been encoded.
